NONEQUILIBRIUM DYNAMICS AND ERGODICITY OF COMPLEX QUANTUM SYSTEMS, December 13 – 17, 2020
Nonequilibrium dynamics of many body quantum systems has become one of the most advanced contemporary research areas in solid state physics, ultra cold atoms, nanophysics and quantum devices. Understanding of such dynamics, which in some cases leads to unusual nonequilibrium steady states, presents a challenge to experimentalists and theory alike. Equally concurrent is an open question related the role of ergodicity breaking mechanisms in many body quantum systems, e.g., in systems subject to strong disorder. At the same time, new and sometimes unexpected experimental discoveries provide stimulus for theory. This workshop continues the tradition with the 9th focused workshop on nonequilibrium phenomena. The aim is to bring together experiment and theory in an informal setting that has been extremely stimulating on previous occasions. The workshop intends to bring together scientists working in the field of:
- Nonequilibrium dynamics in correlated solid state systems such as charge density wave, superconducting and magnetic systems
- Nonequilibrium dynamics in “artificial” quantum systems such as ultra cold atoms in optical lattices and quantum dots
- Nonequilibrium dynamics and measures of ergodicity in quantum many body systems
- Finite-temperature properties of systems with strong electron or electron phonon interactions
Due to the COVID-19 situation the conference will be online only.
